2014- the year of jogging

Recommended Posts

Just came back from a 40k all mountain bike ride.

I really enjoyed it.

 

Went from Kobuchisawa to Haramura in Nagano still quite a short distance and I felt I could have done more quite easily but chose to be sensible and build up my distamce bit by bit.

Averaged 20k/h.

 

Next time maybe I will go to Suwa and back.

Yes it is and it is certainly going to keep me fit with nothing but mountains to cycle up and down which of course I enjoy.

Omce I get into autumn then I will have a lot more time to cycle a lot more while enjoying the autumn colours too.

What sort of slope is "doable" on a bike realistically? Going up, not down, of course. ;)

Went on an 80km ride yesterday, was great. A good long soak in the bath with a beer at the end of the day. Great stuff.

The doable slope amount will be depending on rider abiliry/fitness as much as anything.

Of course a good bike will make it easier.

So far I have been on fairly steep but certainly not real steep and I was able to cycle up it no problem and did not need to go down into the crawler gear.

what seems like a gentle slope can get pretty difficult if it goes on. Good exercise though and the bombing down on the other side is always a good reward.

Few more rides for me before I am out of here for the summer.

 

Feel good but don't seem to have visibily slimmed down that much. :(

Just come back from a nice little bike ride.

All up hill on the way out so all downhill on the way back. Very nice.

:lol:

 

I think more than a few of us go a bit crazy with the eating when going back to home countries.

I know I do, especially the first week or so.

Luckily I slow down a bit after that.

Hell yeah. I eat everything in sight.

All things that I cant get in Japan.

I also stock up on things to bring back too.
